    Literally no. Read the article in response or don't. That's the response. If you don't like it, I don't care. Btc does not give a single fuck what Ray Dalio does. You do. And if he changes his position, then what?

    The link thing is the signal we can be done here. Go pull up a chart of the top 20 alt coins since like 2013. Wake me up when public companies are adding ethereum and link to their balance sheets. Blockchain not bitcoin is just a hilariously stupid take. And I won't waste any more of my finite time responding to it. If that's your position, great. It's wrong.

    The repetition in this thread is from HuskerGuy99.

    And dblplay1212 has never added any substance to the thread. He likes to pop in occasionally to rehash the same tired points.

    We get it guys. Ray Dalio! Shoes! Blockchain not bitcoin! You've said your peace.

    I'll be over here talking about the $200B asset that still hasn't died and that has public company CEO's, CFO's, and boards (who surely considered shoes and other blockchain projects) holding it as a reserve asset. Call them up since you have better ideas on what they should do with their dollars.

    Another comprehension fail and attempt to twist what was said. You made the claim that the market has rejected other cryptos (i.e., BLOCKCHAINS). Your claim was directly proven false by the facts. This is something you have failed to do with Mr. Dalio's video time and time again. It bears repeating because you can't make a simple refutation of his claims. It took me what, two sentences to refute you? You can't do the same? We both know that you can't because what he said is 100% true. The fact that you can't admit it and instead throw a petulant fit is what dblplay is talking about.

    By the way, great job wasting your "finite time" to comb through dbl's post history and look for little nits to pick instead of staying on topic. Yeah you're not mad at all.

    Market: btc largest market cap now and for the entire history of btc.
    You: but what about dogecoin that one year!

    Put literally any of your money where your opinion is. There’s nothing more on my end to be said about the matter. Btc is and will be king in this space. You and Dalio think otherwise. Cool.

    "Dalio's position of "blockchain not btc" is silly and has been roundly rejected by the market. Other cryptocurrencies have been around for years. There's one that matters."

    - Reality in current year 2020

    What you are looking at is a year-to-date return on investment. Ethereum, which is a blockchain technology that has been around for years, is soundly outperforming Bitcoin. It appears the market has not roundly rejected Ethereum and is instead embracing it. It appears that you are full of you know what (which we knew).

    Next time you get a super smart idea like this, go to trading view and look at a chart of ethereum measured in btc. And then come back and tell me why you’re wrong. More homework.

    Also buy some eth for all I care. Or short btc. It’s a ponzi ya know.

    Oooh, what's that in the distance I see? Monero shooting up 26% as a superior technology blockchain project to Bitcoin on the heels of the DOJ report I linked? The market is not roundly rejecting other blockchain projects it seems. Monero been around since 2014 and has superior privacy properties than Bitcoin. Ah, I see there are only 17M XMR coins as opposed to BTC's 21M. So XMR is more scarce than BTC! Wow. Interesting to see XMR also outperforming BTC by nearly 150% year-to-date as well.

    Can anyone explain how Institutional investors buying millions in Bitcoin isn’t extremely bullish? Do you think these are the last companies that will do so? I’d love to hear a counter argument

    Remember what I said about risk asymmetry. If you are holding crypto, you are now assuming all of the risk with much of the upside already completed. S&P down, crypto down. Rinse and repeat.

    For a fun homework assignment, what does Okex's Tether supply look like?

    Woops. That's not...no, it can't be...

    Like flies to shit. Fraudsters to crypto. Game recognize game. Look up the MicroStrategy stock history for some more fun homework.

    It’s weird how this keeps happening



    "Faced with the challenges of COVID and with UK interest rates at the lowest level in the Bank of England's 326-year history, our confidence in the long-term value of Bitcoin has only increased," said Jonathan Rowland, Mode's executive chairman.

    Ok? Was still interesting breakdown for someone that doesn't typically break down the tech behind cyber crimes. No need to get defensive.

    We don’t remotely agree on any of this, but you shouldn’t sell at $15k imo. At least hold through 2021.

    I don't think I'd sell my entire amount but I'd sell a good chunk and be content with 100% profit. If it dips again, buy back in. I'll never regret selling at 100% profit.

    That goes both ways. If you bought BCH at $2k and didn't sell at $4k and now its at $250, you might have regrets. Or XRP for $2, not sell at $4, and now its worth $.25. So yea I'll take 100% and jump out. Leave a little in and see if it dips again.
